May 23, 2014 – Poetry, In defense of the task before me

In defense of the task before me
I must first apologize, in the past few years
I’ve realized a few things

one being

I have been deeply indoctrinated
indoctrinated to the point that
deprogramming was/is/will be anticipated

The machines are still running
‘reverse psychology’ experiments
which will be their downfall

but again, I’ve just typed it
negating the possibility of meaningful change
the channels monitored

new ideas made massive within moments
The individual who utters the utterance
overcome in the undercurrent

of collectivization.
